A world premiere mistaken-identity comedy written by playwright/comedian Matt Moses. Wes Grantom (Eager to Lose, The Steadfast) directs a cast of four including Teddy Bergman (B’way: Peter and the Starcatcher, Off-B’way: Sex Lives of Our Parents), Ryan King (Now Or Later at Huntington Theatre, The Intelligent Design Of Jenny Chow at the Atlantic Theater Company), Polly Lee (Marie Antoinette at Yale Rep, Wasps at Studio 42), and Emily Walton (Eager to Lose, August: Osage County).
Four people get lost in the forest of social media in this raucous farce exploring changing notions of privacy and intimacy in this age of over-sharing. Written by improv and Comedy Central vet Matt Moses (Daniella Uses Dirty Words, UCB's "The Law Firm"), The Cloud fuses the wilds of the internet with Shakespearean romance to conjure a theatrical landscape in which all the www is a stage.
In The Cloud, Chris, a set designer, is gunning for a job designing a major production of As You Like It. His girlfriend Katie is an app designer who gets her first big break with a very revealing app called “Show Me Yours.” Enter Katie’s ex-boyfriend, Greg, a personal trainer who’s ready to end his philandering and get married, and Greg’s client Sandy, a career-obsessed costume designer who decides to spice things up by having a fling with a younger man.
